16 week ultrasound

Well I convinced my dr to do an ultrasound today
.It's either a boy with tiny parts or a girl with big parts. Totally inconclusive. The baby cooperated just right, I don't think he/she ever even moved, just gave us a great shot of it's genitals. But we couldn't decide what those genitals were. It kind of looked like labia, but with a pretty big clitoris. So I guess I'll need to get another u/s next week and see. I told my doctor I needed a %, so he said 60% girl. But he wouldn't go higher than that. I'm glad at least that there is a higher % of girl than boy. But unfortunately, I going to have to muster up some more patience. What do you think it is?

I think GIRL! I never got a Dr. to say more than 80% chance that Sage was a girl. So, not getting a high percentage chance (in my experience) means that you'll end up with a girl. With Drew they (after my BIL Spencer told me differently) told me 100% boy. If they're not sure...it's a girl. At least I hope that's the case w/ you, as it was w/ mine. Can't wait to know forsure! If it's a girl...SHOWER time for you (since you have all the boy stuff)! I'll wait for you to have a girl... :)

I had an ultrasound at 15 weeks and it was very clear it was a boy and that is what i got, so because it's not obvious i think it's a girl!

Thanks guys! I've actually totally convinced myself this little one is a boy. I'm so neurotic, I think I'll need to go pay for an ultrasound asap!

haha oh man that's tough... do you think it's harder KIND OF knowing or WAITING until closer to 20 weeks to find out?? i wanna know right NOW & i'm only 13 weeks... i'm trying so hard to be patient..not one of my best qualities! i hope it's a girl though!! that would be a fun change for you!!!

I actually think girl! I couldn't wait myself, so I paid for a 4D U/S and they do early determination at 15 weeks - I was 16 wks at time of u/s...

I've had 4 girls so far. That looks like girl bum to me, but what do I know...I've never seen boy on an ultrasound! Good luck on getting your girl. I'm pregnant again and hoping for a boy, I think, this time. People say I might regret that. :)
